內容簡介

不同於過往的每一本著作,各自聚焦在神經醫學的特定主題, 
薩克斯在《意識之川流》中,展現了他範圍寬廣的專業與熱情, 
他在神經科學、精神醫學、生物演化、藝術等眾多議題之間流暢游移, 
並重新描摹了他心儀的三位科學英雄--達爾文、佛洛伊德、詹姆斯。 

薩克斯和達爾文一樣,喜愛蒐集案例,是極其敏銳的觀察者和詮釋者; 
薩克斯和佛洛伊德一樣,渴望了解人類行為與心靈中最神祕的部分; 
薩克斯也和詹姆斯一樣,著迷於探究時間感、意識流、記憶和創意。 
《意識之川流》就在薩克斯與這三位先哲跨越時空的智慧激盪下, 
散發出人類意識最動人的光芒。


Two weeks before his death, Oliver Sacks outlined the contents of The River of Consciousness, the last book he would oversee. The best-selling author of On the Move, Musicophilia, and The Man Who Mistook His Wife for a Hat, Sacks is known for his illuminating case histories about people living with neurological conditions at the far borderlands of human experience. But his grasp of science was not restricted to neuroscience or medicine; he was fascinated by the issues, ideas, and questions of all the sciences. That wide-ranging expertise and passion informs the perspective of this book, in which he interrogates the nature not only of human experience but of all life. In The River of Consciousness, Dr Sacks takes on evolution, botany, chemistry, medicine, neuroscience, and the arts, and calls upon his great scientific and creative heroes - above all, Darwin, Freud, and William James. For Sacks, these thinkers were constant companions from an early age; the questions they explored - the meaning of evolution, the roots of creativity, and the nature of consciousness - lie at the heart of science and of this book. The River of Consciousness demonstrates Sacks's unparalleled ability to make unexpected connections, his sheer joy in knowledge, and his unceasing, timeless endeavour to understand what makes us human.
